Focus Camera Final Thoughts

"GREAT EXPERIENCE!"

The Focus Camera is a great deal in this price range and quality. I think the Focus Camera app will take some getting used to. Amazing Focus Camera Camera Drone and pretty decent bundle overall. It works perfectly with no problems, indoors, outdoors. Some reason the App doesn't work with a pixel 2 phone.
